Two young men with physical disabilities stumble into Budapest's underbelly of gangsters and gunfights after they become entangled with a contract killer who uses a wheelchair and seems to come straight out of a comic book in this inventive, action-packed coming-of-age fable.

This 2016 Hungarian Oscar® submission is a coming-of-age film disguised as an action comedy thriller. Two young men with physical disabilities, Zoli and Barba, make friends with contract killer/wheelchair-user Rupaszov to form a gang of hired assassins. This is a story of unlikely heroes who, in each other's company, find reasons to carry on. Imre Juhász's camera work, which uses a wheelchair-level point of view, gives the film that realistic feel. Various storylines and hand-drawn art edited into live-action sequences add to the dynamics. Director/writer Attila Till's original screenplay was inspired by his volunteer work with the disabled, and the film benefits from his knowledgeable, sensitive direction and the casting of non-pros. Kills on Wheels is no heavy, hopelessly bleak story of being disabled in Hungary, but an energetic and Tarantinoesque thriller. Disabled or not, live life as much as you can, when you can. What do you have to lose? As in all stories, things are never as they first appear.
